How often have we heard the wish, “I want to stay in my home.” Most people love their home, as it is a place of comfort, security, and memories. But what happens when your staircase becomes an obstacle to making this wish come true?
Statistics show that walking up and down stairs is a leading cause of falls for people of any age or ability. But what’s more, as we get older, our chances of falling increases: more than 33% of of people over 65 fall each year.
Aging at Home Comfortably: Stairlifts Can Help You Get Your Independence Back
The installation of a stair lift can provide effortless movement between floors, removing the physical limitations and dangers of your stairs. In addition, it will also reduce the wear and tear on ankles, hips, and knee joints, thus making you more comfortable.
Most importantly, stairlifts are one of the easiest ways to help prevent dangerous falls for those who are more prone to accidents due to health or age.

At Williams Lift Company, we are completely focused on making aging at home as easy as possible through a variety of stairlift options that work best for your family, home, and budget.
